State public health experts have announced that any gathering of 250 or more people should be rescheduled or canceled in an effort to minimize the risk of illness from COVID-19. At this time, the job fair has been postponed until further notice.

Educators seeking jobs in San Diego County schools can receive credential advisement, employment information, and possibly even an offer of employment at the March 28 Teacher Job Fair.
The event is presented by the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) in partnership with Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU).
School districts and charter schools from across San Diego County are looking for qualified educators to work with students.
"The event is a great opportunity for you to connect with representatives from districts, charter schools, and private schools regarding job openings and anticipated openings," said Dr. Sheiveh Jones, director of teacher effectiveness and preparation for SDCOE. "Be sure to come with several copies of your resume. Local school districts are always looking to hire the best and brightest for the upcoming school year."
Some districts may offer an interview on the spot, so attendees are encouraged to dress professionally and be prepared to interview. Other districts may collect your resume in anticipation of an opening within the district.
